XOXO Flower Card

Today, I received my first crafting injury.  I was punching out the corrugated kraft flower and pinched the palm of my hand pretty good.  So, I now have a bruise from crafting.  Oh well, beauty can be painful. 

The XOXO Flower Card was made using the Retro Sketches challenge and the colour challenge from ColourQ.  I love the simplicity of this weeks sketch, it was super easy to put together and still maintains a dramatic look.
